“These essays and dispatches provide an eloquent and unfiltered glimpse into how the ruling Communist Party has transformed the Tibetan plateau through decades of heavy-handed policies.”
Andrew Jacobs, Beijing correspondent for The New York Times

Law’s fluid translations of Woeser and Wang Lixiong’s powerful and deeply humane writings, combined with Robert Barnett’s insightful and elegantly crafted introduction, make for an extraordinarily effective volume.Voices from Tibet is a must-read for anyone eager to learn more about the Tibetan people and their struggles.”
